Automatic Air Powered Vacuum Pump

Portable Automatic Vacuum Pump System for vacuum workholding, fixturing and vacuum forming.

This Vacuum Pump can be used with all of the 2L Modular Vacuum Chucks, Large Vacuum Chucks, and many other vacuum workholding systems.

It creates a vacuum using standard shop air pressure and automatically turns on and off as required to maintain a set point.

The Automatic Vacuum Switch controls the operation of the Vacuum Pump. As the vacuum level drops in the storage tank, the Vacuum Switch turns the Air Venturi Vacuum Pump on until the upper limit of the vacuum is reached. Once the upper vacuum limit is reached the Air Venturi Vacuum Pump shuts off. The Air Venturi Vacuum Pump cycles on and off automatically as needed, therefore constant monitoring is not necessary.
